Sewell Woods is a 35 acre property donated to Scarborough Land Trust in 1996 by Albert G. Sewell. In 1918, Albert Sewell established Sewell Woods Products, a company which grew to have mills in Gorham, Waldoboro, and Bridgton. White pine and balsam fir were harvested and sold directly on the market. Spruce, oak, maple, beech, and birch trees were used in the manufacturing of shingles, ladders, shoe racks, lawn chairs, camp stools, and lobster traps.
Today numerous walking trails and bridges over the Stuart Brook are maintained for public recreational uses.
Please note that biking is not allowed on the preserve.
